YSL Downtown, what size to choose?

  1. Hello dear bag experts!
    I want to buy a Downtown bag, but I am in doubt what size to choose.
    Could any of you give me the measurement of the three different sizes?
    TIA!!! :tup:
  2. I have a medium DT and love it.
    I posted this in a previous thread...don't have measurements for the small

    11"W (around 19" at its widest) X 13 1/2"H X 9 1/2"D, 7" handle drop

    11 1/2"W (18" at its widest) X 16"H X 7 1/2"D, I think a 6" handle drop
  3. Just found the small on Bluefly. It's pretty small.

    6 1/2" at widest x 8 1/2"H x 4 3/4"D, 3" handle drop
  4. Thank you very much! Strange that the Medium apparently is deaper than the large :confused1:

    The Medium is the most popular one, right? :flowers:
  5. I'd say that most PFers actually have the large :yes:

    The depth, I'm sure, refers to the bottom of the bag measurements only.
  6. IMO the small dwarfs everyone who wears it and makes them look a little childish. It's so not YSL, I don't know why it exists.

    The medium is my favorite size; I lovelovelovelovelove it.
  7. Medium :tup:
  8. I have and love the medium. It really is huge enough for all purposes. Get large if you want a seriously oversized bag,or luggage.
  9. I am quite small myself so maybe the large would look too big, I might try the medium. Just wish I could see photos of the bags beside each other.
  10. If I had to guess, I'd say that more TPFers probably have the medium while you'll see a lot of larges in the celebrity photos so your best bet is probably just to pick the size and shape that you think will work best for you.

    The medium is designed to be boxier while the large is longer. I have, and prefer, the large but since you mention you're a small person maybe you'd feel more comfortable with the medium. They're both pretty large bags so if you're not drawn to the shape of the large then the medium could make more sense as it will surely accomodate whatever you want to carry and will save you a couple of bucks to boot.

    You may also want to pick the style you like first, because in addition to size and shape, the style you select may also play a part in the decision as you may like the look of a specific leather/color in one size more than the other.
  11. I took the medium - the large one would probably make me look even shorter. It will be the black patent. :heart: Excited to receive it!
  12. We have the same one! Congrats on your purchase, take photos when you have it :yahoo:!
  13. There is actually a travel size downtown that is even bigger than the large; I think it's a little taller and a lot wider.

    One of my friends tried it on when we were in YSL in NY, so I caught I glimpse, but I was busy myself with black, red, and violet patent medium downtown totes. So yeah, I was in heaven!
  14. :roflmfao:Purplekicks, you're hilarious! I would've been in heaven too had I also been amidst so much fabulousness...I think that's the one I mentioned previously, maybe in another post. YSL has a travel carry-on tote that looks like a blown up version of the medium size...and a matching trolley too. Simply to die for :drool:!
  15. Lyra,hope you love your bag!! I would love to see this luggage downtown if anyone has pictures :graucho:.
